Batter Up!

Dana Milbank via Drudge points out the baseball metaphors in the Roberts hearings:

``I'll start out by pitching you something of a softball,''

``You hit a home run yesterday,''

``it's my job to call balls and strikes and not to pitch or bat.

So where's my favorite: "no matter how nicely things started out, who didn't
know the Orioles would suck by September," ?
